Cedar Rock Goes to the Dogs


“Eddie's House” was the only doghouse designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It was designed for the Berger family of San Anselmo, California, and intended to be used by their dog Eddie.  A replica of the Eddie’s House tours the country, and will be on display at Cedar Rock this summer.

In honor of this visit, Friends of Cedar Rock and  Buchanan County Animal Shelter invite you and your furry friends to join us for this unique new fundraiser for the Buchanan County Animal Shelter.

Activities include: 

  • Pictures with Eddie's House

  • Home Grooming Tips

  • Service Dog Presentations

  • Dog Rally Demonstration and Participation

  • Pawprint Stepping Stones

  • Toy Making

  • Tours of the Walter House

A lunch vendor will also be available on site providing refreshments for purchase. 

$20 individual donation, $30 family donation.  All proceeds from the event benefit the Buchanan County Animal Shelter and Friends of Cedar Rock.
